Joey Porter might claim he doesn't like the kinds of teams that want football to be a thinking game. But as we discover in this week's installment of Every Play Counts, Porter is a smart player.

Another impressive win for the Steelers has them heading to Detroit as favorites. Ben Roethlisberger has been great, but it is the pass rush that is leading this team. Denver suffers another difficult playoff loss, but maybe the biggest problem could be the defensive coaching, not the quarterback.

The NFL's final four features a quartet of strong teams, and each has at least a one in five chance of winning the Super Bowl. It's the slight gradations in that last one chance in five that determine who should be favored in this weekend's contests. You'll find all the DVOA analysis you know and love over on FOXSports.com, previewing both Pittsburgh at Denver and Carolina at Seattle. Discussion is here, along with extra analysis of Denver's run defense and the 2003 Panthers vs. the 2005 Panthers.

You know about Seattle's running back, quarterback and offensive line. But what made the Seahawks improve from a mediocre team last year to a title contender this year? The answer is the run defense. Read about the most important addition to that defense in this week's installment of Every Play Counts.

Usually at Football Outsiders, our take is very different from the conventional wisdom. But not today, as Al and Vivek line up to take shots at this weekend's officiating. Plus Best Bets, an update on FO's playoff fantasy teams, and the most obvious Keep Choppin' Award winner of all time.

The media had been informed, including Football Outsiders. The referees had certainly been informed. Somebody forgot to tell the Steelers that the Colts were this year's Super Bowl winners. And, unfortunately for the Colts, someone also forgot to tell their offensive line.
